Oocyte Preservation Consult

Our center performs oocyte preservation procedures for women looking to preserve their fertility. When they come in for their initial consultation or follow-up visits, we bill with diagnosis code Z31.62 (fertility preservation counseling) or sometimes we use Z31.69 (encounter for other counseling and advice on procreation). Recently, BCBS started denying anything that we bill with these two codes because they consider them “routine”. Do you know of any other ICD-10 we can use when the patient comes in for consults/follow ups?
